Moms Talk: Losing the Baby Weight!

Summer is just around the corner ... are we ready?

Moms Talk: Losing the Baby Weight!

A friend recently confessed to me she is having trouble shedding the pounds she gained from her second born. Breastfeeding isn't working as some claim it does, and she would like to avoid a membership to Weight Watchers.

Personally, I weighed less those first six weeks after delivering than I do today. However, muscle weighs more than fat. So while the scale read low, my pants size was double. If only I could get to the weight with the muscle of those early six weeks, or even 10 pounds lighter!

We all see the Hollywood moms slim down to smaller than prebirth weight in as little as three weeks, but we can't afford personal trainers, nannies and chefs. How do we do it? If you've lost the weight without a struggle, we want to know how. And if you're still hiding your waistline under your belly band, we want to hear from you too!
